This Online Etymology Dictionary will hopefully be compelling to you.

Person.

Has no relation to:

Per.
Son.

I find that these bits:
Quote:
directly from Latin persona "human being, person, personage; a part in a drama, assumed character," originally "a mask, a false face," such as those of wood or clay worn by the actors in later Roman theater.

I don't have to prove nothing, nor can I and nor do I care. Who in this situation has the burden of proof?
If demons control this realm and you want help in defeating them then you'd better be able to convince non-believers that they exist.
